Blue Shift 2 is a Half Life 2 modification started by GMan003. It quickly gained support through its birth-forum, Facepunchstudios. Growing too large for the regular forums, the group started the Blue Shift 2 forums, which are still gaining support. Many positions are still available so if you meet the requirements, feel free to ask. --- In this game, a sequel to Gearbox's Blue Shift, you play as Barney Calhoun, an ally throughout much of Half-Life 2. The game takes place immediately before Half-Life 2, showing Barney's epic crusade through Industrial City 17, the coastal areas, Ravenholm, and outlying, fighting creatures and combine alike. It is built on the Half-Life 2 engine, Source. Half-Life 2 is required to play. Is not yet compatible with XBox, XBox360, PS3 or Linux versions of Half-Life 2.

Legally speaking, Blue Shift 2 is not the best name to have. My first thought when I saw the name was that Valve was doing another expansion. It isn't. For that reason, Valve would have the legal authority to either shut you down (unlikely) or require a name change (may not happen unless you get big enough, but it's not something that should be disregarded as any work on banners and promotional images will have been for nought).

No edit? Anywho, to illustrate my point: Imagine if the Fortress Forever mod had been named Team Fortress 2. There'd be a conflict now, which Valve cannot have.

Hey people. Yes I saw how crappy this page is set up. Not only do the features sound noobish, the things you must fix sound dumb as well. Moddb.com theres how a web page on here is supposed to be set up. Also, we don't have any unknown things to our mod. Just saying, rethink on how youre constructing this mod.

I'm sorry but this needs to be re-done...The mapping is ugly and the presentation of the mod is so sad that I am actually going to remove it from my Steams List...
